Is Not This The Land Of Beulah
IS NOT THIS THE LAND OF BEULAH? VERSE G C G D G I am dwelling on the mountain, where the golden sunlight gleams G C G D G O'er a land whose wondrous beauty far exceeds my fondest dreams; D G C G D G C G Where the air is pure, ethereal, laden with the breath of flow'rs, G C G D G They are blooming by the fountain, 'Neath the amaranthine bow'rs CHORUS G C G C G Is not this the land of Beulah? Blessed, blessed land of light, G C G D G Where the flowers bloom forever, And the sun is always bright! VERSE 2 G C G D G I can see far down the mountain, where I wandered weary years, G C G D G Often hindered in my journey by the ghosts of doubts and fears; D G C G D G C G Broken vows and disappointments thickly sprinkled all the way, G C G D G But the Spirit led, unerring, to the land I hold today. VERSE 3 G C G D G I am drinking from the fountain, Where I ever would abide; G C G D G For I've tasted life's pure river, And my soul is satisfied; D G C G D G C G There's no thirsting for life's pleasures, Nor adorning, rich and gay, G C G D G For I've found a richer treasure, One that fadeth not away. VERSE 4 G C G D G Tell me not of heavy crosses, Nor of burdens hard to bear, G C G D G For I've found this great salvation makes each burden light appear; D G C G D G C G And I love to follow Jesus, gladly counting all but dross, G C G D G Worldly honors all forsaking for the glory of the cross.
